Welcome, Friend.

Volunteer with PFC

Volunteers are Community Ambassadors.

Collectively, we share the belief that:

  1.  Food is a basic human right, and is fundamental to physical, mental, and emotional health.

  2.  Everyone, regardless of their economic means, age, gender, abilities, or ethnicity, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

  3.  A physically and emotionally safe environment is key to building strong communities.

  4.  Positive social change happens one person at a time.

  5.  Partnerships create strong communities.

  6.  It is our responsibility to challenge inequalities and raise awareness.

  7.  Creativity and innovation are to be encouraged and embraced.

  8.  Engaged staff and volunteers are vital to our success

  9.  Being a leader, and encouraging leadership in others, will create momentum and growth.
